UNIQUE SHORELINE RETREAT

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Branford

House, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Unique home abutting a granite bluff in the Connecticut Shoreline community of Branford, walking distance to small town park with beach, picnic grounds and fishing pier. The historic town center and train to New Haven (with New York City connections) is located just one mile from the property along a scenic river view walk.

The main level includes a full kitchen, with all new appliances and a breakfast bar opening to the family room. This level also has a full bath, music room with a piano, and a dining room (complete with gas fireplace) opening to a private natural deck with spectacular views of an abutting granite ledge and woods.

The upper level has two large bedrooms and two full baths, plus a yoga/meditation room. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, private deck, and full bath. The second bedroom has a full bed (plus a full futon), with water views and is adjacent to another upstairs bathroom with a tiled shower.

A laundry is located in the garage, off the kitchen, and the finished basement includes a infrared sauna and massage table. Fresh, high quality linens, towels, etc. provided.

We offer a SMOKE FREE, natural environment perfect for quiet safe meditative thought and relaxation, close to the beaches, hiking trails and gentle beauty of the Connecticut shoreline, while less than 10 miles from the museums, galleries, theater and other cultural attractions of New Haven and Yale.

EXCELLENT VACATION HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We reserved the home for two weeks in mid June. Without a doubt, this was the best vacation home we have ever rented. The location is great, being only about a 5 block walk to the town beach and picnic grove.

Branford is only about a 5 mile drive to New Haven. So lots to do and see. The town is long-established with beautiful homes, trees, and granite rock formations everywhere. Numerous marinas full of all types of boats and great sea food restaurants.

The house has been well-maintained with updated baths and kitchen. The owners are quite thoughtful and take obvious pride in their property. You will not be disappointed

A WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful home that is spacious, well-decorated, great lighting and supplies. The owners are very very helpful and as others have noted had a light breakfast already in the fridge when I arrived. Location was great - very easy access to New Haven and the coast.

A WONDERFUL HOUSE AND A TRUE RETREAT!

  • 5 out of 5
I had the pleasure of spending a long weekend in October at this lovely home. I have already booked to return for a weekend in November. This is a beautifully maintained and decorated home with many excellent spaces both within the house and outdoors to relax and rejuvenate from the stresses of life. The owners are very responsive, and everything that you could possibly need to be comfortable is in this house. The home and everything in it is very clean, neat, and attractive. I have had the good fortune to stay in many very nice hotels and rental properties over the years, and I must say that this is one of my very favorites!

"GREAT ESCAPE FROM REALITY!"

"Great escape from reality!"
  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I rented this house to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt right at home! The house was clean, bright, open and very inviting! We were able to walk in, unpack and begin cooking dinner as if it was our own home. The kitchen was well-stocked with equipment, condiments, it even included breakfast for the next morning, which the owners left in the fridge! We were there during the hottest week of the summer (95-100 degrees each day) but we were perfectly comfortable in the ledge retreat!

LOVELY HOME, GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Well loved, charming home that has a feeling of seclusion while grocery store, interstate and beach are easily reached in minutes. You'll get the feeling that you are staying at a friends home rather then a rental. Owners are definitely detail oriented. Lots of space for a family with teenagers to spread out or gather together. 15 minute drive to New Haven. It was perfect, we loved it!!
